Teatro La Quindicina brightens the cultural landscape with applause-inducing dramas and comedies that celebrate its community's creative intellect. Award-winning local playwright Stewart Lemoine's rollicking farce follows a motley crew of international individuals on a continent-hopping escapade packed with espionage, nail-biting exploits, and webs of intrigue populated by soliloquizing spiders. The high-energy script set in the polyester-swathed 1970s underscores an adroit cast consisting of some of Teatro La Quindicina's most seasoned and charming board-treaders. As all seating is general admission, theatregoers should ensure that covered wagons and oxen are prepped for an early departure.
